7:00 pm
big milestone at fox news. our facebook page hit 10,000 likes. you can see a picture of my family at disney. it really is the happiest place on earth. tonight. >> i will veto a bill that makes it to my desk. >> the president goes on offense. we'll preview tomorrow night's state of the union address. >> you have a green light. your call, over. >> "american sniper" breaks box office records and left wing lunatics come out swinging. >> it reflects the context of how there's no diversity in hollywood. >> and the reverend al sharpton shakes down the oscars and calls for an emergency meeting on diversity. >> al sharpton ought to organize a whole bunch of other emergency meetings on real emergencies before he has a total freak out over how the academy awards are
7:01 pm
playing themselves out. >> all of that plus our question of the day, "hannity" starts right here, right now. welcome to "hannity." tomorrow night president obama will speak to the nation during his annual state of the union address. but despite the sweeping republican victory in the midterm elections, president obama remains defiant. now, remember when he said this back in 2013? >> you don't like a particular policy or a particular president, then argue for your position. go out there and win an election. push to change it. but don't break it. >> well guess what? republicans did go out they argued their positions and the american people voted. and because taxpayers want a change in washington republicans now have a record number of seats in the u.s. house of representatives. as a matter of fact, the most since 1949. and in the u.s. senate the gop has regained the majority. the voters have spoken. if president obama won't back down and still refuses to listen to you, the american people. standing by at the white house
7:02 pm
with a preview of what taxpayers can expect to hear tomorrow night, fox's own ed henry. ed, i made a list. 7% increase in discretionary spending, $320 billion tax increase, five veto threats, cuba has happened since the election, tax the rich, redistribute wealth won't talk about rad call islam, moving forward on immigration and free tuition. i think we've pretty much got the message that the president didn't get the message. >> free tuition for two years of community college. and as you suggest it's not really free. it's going to cost taxpayers about $60 billion. and it's important for you to raise that because it's tied right into the president's tax plan. because in order to pay for that quote/unquote free community college, he wants to raise tax on the rich to the tune of $220 billion and he wants to use some of the other money raised by the rich by giving tax credit to the tune of about $175 billion to
7:03 pm
couples in what he defines as the middle class. what's interesting is he put out a preview of all of these plans today. and it looked a lot like a campaign commercial from 2012 where the president did talk about basically, as you suggest redistributing wealth. what's interesting is a sharp contrast to what the president was saying last fall when he said his policies were on the ballot and that we would find out whether these policies would survive or not. listen to what he said today and what he said before the midterm. >> this state of the union gives me an opportunity to present to the american people now that we have fought our way through the crisis, how do we make sure that everybody in this country how do we make sure that they're sharing in this growing economy? i'm not on the ballot this fall. michelle's pretty happy about that. but make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot. every single one of them.
7:04 pm
>> he said those policies were on the ballot. he won on those policies in 2012 but clearly lost in the 2014 midterms. and that's why republicans today came out and said the early look of what we're reporting on about these plans will be invalid tomorrow night. so the president's divorce from reality and doesn't want to deal with the new power dynamic on capitol hill with republicans running both chambers of congress. the white house position when i talked to a senior aide said, look, the economy is recovering and the president's plan over the last six years would wreck the economy instead it's recovering. if you look at "the washington post"/abc news poll are coming back because of that recovering economy. he's going to spread his wings and try and lay out his aggressive plans for what he wants to do in his final two years. but the reality is republicans are going to block a lot of that, sean. >> ed henry live at the white house tonight. ed, as always thank you. before we get to our guest here, let's put this in perspective for you. in 2008 the president said $9 trillion in debt was
7:05 pm
irresponsible and unpatriotic. that's what he said. we now have $18 trillion in debt. by the time this president leaves office he may have accumulated more debt than every other president before him combined. is that irresponsible? is that unpatriotic? now we have a doubling of people on food stamps, 50 million americans in poverty, 92 million americans are outside the labor force. let's look at who pays the taxes in america. if you look at the top 1% the latest year we have 2012, the top 1% the president, again, he wants to raise $320 billion in new taxes on them. they already paid 38.9% of the taxes. the bottom 50% pays $2.8%. and he wants to increase discretionary spending 7%. if you look at these numbers, in actual real numbers, the top 1% paid in 2012 $451.33 billion. the bottom 50% of wage earners, $31 billion. joining us now with reaction, former florida congressman, ceo
7:06 pm
of national center for policy analysis colonel alan west and co-host of "the five" bob beckel. top 1% pays 38%. the bottom 50% pays $2.87%. the president wants to tax the 1%, the rich more. is that fair? >> of course it's fair. >> of course. >> obviously it's going to catch you, it's going to catch me it's going to catch alan west. but it's politics he's playing here. it is a recovering economy, you could call a booming economy. approval ratings are going up. i think he's going to say i'm not backing up for what i stood for before this midterm election. i was elected by more people by the way voted for republican members of congress. >> actually, he got 3.5 million fewer votes in 2012. >> than what? >> than he got in 2008. >> no, that's not what i was talking about. >> here's the president, colonel west, he says he's going to go on offense, 7% increase in
7:07 pm
discretionary spending he's nearly doubled the debt and taken on as much debt as every president before him combined. then you mention cuba, five veto threats. immigration, he'll just re-write the laws and free tuition and make the rich pay for it. what politically is he doing here? i think he's sending a message. >> i don't know if the president has ever been to the battlefield of gettysburg but also general george pickett went on charge there it was valiant but failed. i think that's what you're seeing here. politically the president may be making an argument to try to demonize the gop and republicans, but when you look at those numbers you just talked about, it does not make sense. if we were raising taxes to truly do something to lower our debt, if we were raising taxes to get the 90 to 91 million americans dropped out of the work force back to work then the american people could understand it. if you go back and look at how president bill clinton pivoted in 1994 and he worked with the
7:08 pm
republican majorityies in the house and senate, they were able to cut the size and scope of the government. >> clinton worked with the republicans. and you know what? the country benefitted. let me go to bob. >> listen, let me -- >> okay. because we all know this isn't going to happen what he's proposing. but all i see is a guy, the frank marshal davis guy, the right guy. bill clinton said the era of big government was over after he lost midterm. >> the fact of the matter is the biggest change we've seen in terms of legislation and policy moves in this country have been when one party controls the white house and the other controls the congress. go back to civil rights -- >> so where's obama reaching across the aisle? >> i think where he's going to reach across is on trade. there is going to be a tax deal done. look, he cannot afford to go for another two years with nothing being accomplished. nor by the way can republican congress have nothing they can show for. >> let me ask you a question if
7:09 pm
bill clinton said the era of big government is over. he learned. he changed. the end of welfare as we know he changed. give me one example where obama has cast aside his radicalism. >> trade. >> too weak, bob. colonel west. >> what's weak about that? >> colonel west. >> trade has nothing to do with our economy. >> that's a nice thing to say to me after i gave you an answer. >> thank you. colonel west. >> i will tell you there are a lot of people on the union side that are concerned about more jobs being shipped away from america because of some of these trade agreements like the transpacific partnership. but look at the keystone xl pipeline. look at what is happening in curb cushing, oklahoma. a lot of things in our economy are happening in the oil and natural gas industry and it's occurring despite the president because most is occurring on state and private lands. although the president can take credit for it. but we need to continue to push on. instead we're starting to see losing jobs in the oil and natural gas industry which in
7:10 pm
the long run will hurt our economy. >> just one sister soldier moment. just one. >> he can't -- >> it's not in him. >> inviting you to a party at the white house. that would be a sister soldier moment. >> that would be. >> and you know what, bob? >> what. >> hell will freeze over first. >> that's exactly right. numbers are in "american sniper" a massive hit, box office records shattered this weekend. but hollywood liberals are attacking the movie. two friends with chris kyle are going to respond coming up next. also, al sharpton at it again. this time calling for an emergency meeting because he doesn't think the academy award nominations are diverse enough. did he miss "12 years a slave"? that was less than a year ago. that and more straight ahead. just a ram 1500 ecodiesel that gets 156 more miles per tank than the ford f-150 ecoboost.

7:12 pm
7:13 pm
welcome back to "hannity." "american sniper" has smashed box office records making over $105 million this past weektd. the powerful epic starring bradley cooper and sienna miller is based on the true life story of navy s.e.a.l. sniper chris kyle. >> do you ever think that you might have seen things or done some things over there that you wish you hadn't? >> oh, that's not me, no. >> what's not you? >> i was just protecting my guys. they were trying to kill our soldiers. and i'm willing to meet my creator and answer every shot that i took. the thing that haunts me are all the guys that i couldn't save. >> well, despite the film's success, predict bli some hollywood liberals are on the attack. michael moore took to twitter and wrote my uncle killed by sniper in world war ii, we were taught snipers are cowards, will shoot you in the back.
7:14 pm
snipers aren't heroes invaders are worse. but if you're on the roof of your home defending it from invaders who've come 7,000 miles, you are not a sniper you are brave, he said he never mentioned "american sniper" in he has tweets but reiterated his belief that snipers are cowards, coincidence? i don't think but the left wing lunacy doesn't stop there. actor seth rogen compared to a fake nazi propaganda film. "american sniper" reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third act of "in glorious basterds." " sean, let me start with you. i know my reaction, navy s.e.a.l.s, our military protect michael moore and seth rogen's right to be dumb and ignorant and idiotic in their comments and even mean spirited.
7:15 pm
what's your reaction? >> sean, don't hold back anything about how you feel about their comments. second, michael moore has backed off of his comments -- >> no he really didn't though. he's still saying snipers are cowards. snipers are the guys that saved the lives of american troops that are about to be killed. that's their job. >> i'm with you. i mean the definition of cowardese is not taking accountability for your own words. another thing is wrongly attacking or insinuateing a man is cowardly when he's not even here to defend himself. believe me if chris kyle were here, he'd probably hit back on his own. that's why i'm responding because he's not. i think it's highly ironic that a guy like michael moore uses the freedom he's been graciously gifted by the american soldiers and heroes like chris kyle to then turn around and blame the american militaries for all the problems of the world. to me that's the definition of irony and coward at the same time. >> i agree with sean.
7:16 pm
it is ironic the very freedom michael moore has is a gift that's given to him by god and protected by a strong military. his right to be ignorant and his right to be mean and stupid. that's protected by the military as well. >> yeah i find it interesting that michael moore wants to come out and say snipers are cowards. the person who lacks to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant things. i think the only unpleasant thing michael moore has gone through recently is the amount of hate and discontent he stirred from this comment. him trying to step back from it to utilize sniper analogy here, you know, once you fire that shot, you can't take that round back. that's what makes our snipers so effective and amazing on the battlefield. they've done all this training and do all these calculations. they don't fire that round without thinking through the decisions that they made on that
7:17 pm
target. michael moore obviously didn't think through that decision before he fired this shot off. >> yeah. the movie was amazeing. when we left here friday after we did our special full hour on "american sniper" and chris's dad and wife were on the program, you know thrks is how "new york times" characterized. they were surprised. we were expecting $60 million at that point. the movie that the $105 million weekend take which breaks all january records and by every definition as a blockbuster film. but "new york times" said, oh, they were surprised hollywood was surprised the conservative heartland crowd surprised hollywood by its size. you know doesn't that kind of tell you a little bit about new york hollywood, the d.c. crowd sean, they kind of don't get that red part of america, the heart and soul of the country. >> yeah. any time i see comments like this i think comments whether from michael moore or seth rogen, i think what it does is
7:18 pm
underscores an inherent anti-military bias in hollywood. and i think if hollywood could just get past that bias, you'd see more military blockbusters celebrating american exceptionalism, selfless service, honor and integrity on the battlefield and make hundreds of millions all at the same time. right off the top of my head couple stories that come to my mind are trident and -- >> jason, interesting, it got six nominations for oscars. i assume the academy of motion pictures now got what they wanted because probably a lot of people are going to watch the academy awards probably to watch "american sniper" get snubbed by a movie that most americans did not want to see because the next highest grossing movie was only $21 million this weekend. i think "selma" for example rounded out the top five with $10.3 million. i would fully expect that
7:19 pm
"american sniper" gets snubbed by the hollywood elites. your thoughts? >> i don't think it really matters, sean. you know, it doesn't really matter what hollywood thinks. you know they're going to try and drive the messaging. >> i agree. >> they're a loud mouth minority that want to try and drive their views and agenda. it's obviously -- it's obvious that the american people stepped up and shown what they're looking for. they are hungry for leadership. they're hungry for heroes. and that's what our american military has been doing for the last 13 years since this war broke out. chris kyle was a hero. he went out there and he was willing to sacrifice himself to make a difference in not only his brothers' lives but in the lives of the american people. even in the lives of somebody like michael moore and seth rogen who have no clue what we were out there fighting for or didn't even understand it. it comes back to the freedoms that they have to make comments like that. >> let me play a little clip from taya, kyle who is chris's
7:20 pm
wife when she was on the program this past friday night. watch this. >> the horror of it is that they were there trying to help and that somebody could turn his gun and intentionally kill two people in cold blood that's where the horror is i think, for me. and at the same time i think maybe it was always in some way chris was going to die the way he lived, serving others. because that was such a big part of him. >> real quick. both of you were friends with chris. i'll start with you, sean. did that movie accurately portray chris the way he really was? >> yes absolutely. and i think that "american sniper" -- chris's experience -- "american sniper" is an interspective look on a man for five years and his family. if that can create a dialogue in this nation to help bring our veterans home and make their homecoming better, we will be a better nation for it. because our veterans are the
7:21 pm
future leader, entrepreneurs and innovators in this country. we have to encourage them not just to come home and reintegrate but come back and reinvigorate america. >> that scene is how the movie starts where that woman and young kid and chris has to make a decision about whether to shoot both of them. jason, did the movie accurately portray your friend? >> yeah, absolutely. i think the greatest thing about the movie is it doesn't paint chris as some sort of this hard core warrior, the achilles hercules, just this war-focused movie. instead it really touched upon the idea that war is a horrible thing. for seth rogen to liken this to nazi propaganda is ridiculous because it does show the demons all veterans come home that they carry with them. and chris carried them. you know obviously. like i said when he made those shots, when he did those things he was doing it to save lives. but it also showed the heavy burden that comes with fighting
7:22 pm
our nation's wars. and that's something i think neither michael moore nor chris rogen could understand. >> both elitist narcissistic hollywood has-beens, both of them. >> sean, if you'll allow me, i got an interesting point about seth rogen. i was taking a look into him. seth's a dual citizen. he was born in canada but now lives here in the united states. in june of '14 he made this comment, my dad is american so i've always been an american citizen. which is very nice because it's made my life so much easier. so, seth rogen on behalf of all u.s. american veterans who fought on behalf of your freedom, you're welcome. >> well said. another movie -- al sharpton wants more nominations for black artists. >> it reflects the context of how there's no diversity in hollywood. it wouldn't be an issue if you
7:23 pm
had diversity in hollywood. you doent. >> sharpton taking his fight to hollywood. we'll get reaction. and more. >> no sharia law ever in this country. ever. >> our "hannity" camera crew banned from a muslim stand in texas this past weekend, but we did get reaction from the protesters outside. we'll show you that tape exclusive right here straight ahead. introducing preferred rewards from bank of america the new banking rewards program that rewards our customers, every day. you'll get things like rewards bonuses on credit cards.... extra interest on a savings account... preferred pricing on merrill edge online trades and more... across your banking and investing get used to getting more. that's the power of more rewarding connections that's preferred rewards from bank of america.

7:26 pm
categories. that's a problem. a problem that needs to be addressed. >> sharpton said the lack of diversity in the nominations is hard to believe. he's calling for an emergency meeting with his diversity task force to talk about potential actions. now, sharpton claims he isn't trying to get money from hollywood, but does anyone believe that? here with reaction fox news contributor deroy murdock, brian benjamin. let's take a look at the academy awards nominations -- let's go back one little year. not even a full year. these are the nominations that they didn't win, okay. actor in a leading role, actor in a supporting role costume design, directing, film editing, production design. here are the other three they did win, motion picture of the year, actress in a supporting role writing, adapted screenplay. that wasn't even a year ago. so tell me, where's the complaint here? by the way "12 years a slave" i love the movie. well-deserved. >> i think if you look at
7:27 pm
"selma" obviously it's about martin luther king jr. by the way happy martin luther king jr. day here. it got a lot of golden globe nominations. >> golden globe is a hundred people. >> no, i understand that. but there should have been a feeling for best director -- >> you're saying everybody. it opened this weekend, right? selma? it took in $10.3 million. "american sniper" took in $105 million in the box office and broke all kinds of records. maybe people -- >> not based on the amount of money you make. you know that. >> "12 years a slave" was a great movie. >> sure. >> i'm thinking 2014. >> it's a great movie. i highly recommend it. great touching and wonderful portrayal -- great movie. highly recommend it. now, were the performances by the actors necessarily the five best in each category? i thought david yeolowo maybe
7:28 pm
his was the sixth they got to pick five. i would think sharpton would be on much stronger ground if as you point out we had not had this applause for black sinmatic achievement one year ago. >> this isn't even a full year. >> not even a full year. there's some giant racist plot in hollywood, it must be brand new. >> just started 11 months ago. >> it started 11 months ago. >> i don't think it's a racist plot but i think there needs to be more diversity in films more diversity in directors. this is a general issue. >> another great film last year was "django unchained." there's diversity in hollywood. i think there's plenty of it. >> i don't think there's plenty of it. >> one way is to take the unions very small, overwhelmingly white, if we had a right to work law in hollywood would make it easier for young black males to get jobs -- more people in the pool. >> i agree with you.
7:29 pm
>> so start my radio show today and i play part of martin luther king jr. "i have a dream" speech. every time i hear it it literally put a chill down your spine. this man was an inspiration for everybody. i think of that message and then i think of twana brawly and "crown heights" and the fact al sharpton, this al sharpton going to play, he's obama's go-to guy on race issues, this is the guy that gets to the white house in this day and age. how do we go from mlk to this? >> you ain't nothing you're a punk -- [ bleep ] do something. >> we the black chicken fryers of the universe. and we gonna go buy -- we learned to admire them but they knew to admire us. we built pyramids for donald trump ever knew architect was. david dingins you wan na be the
7:30 pm
only [ bleep ] on television [ bleep ]. >> it's only the tip of the iceberg. how does he get access to the president? how does he become the guy -- the go-to guy of obama? how does that happen? >> he has a large nonprofit that does a lot of civil rights work around the country. i mean, film from 20 years ago. you're bringing up film from 20 years ago, sean, it's a little unfair. >> what about steve scalise that statement he made 20 years ago people put that behind them. sharpton, there's a guy that can put together a crowd. why not an emergency meeting on the fact 32% of black kids don't get out of high school? how about an emergency meeting about 560 black folks are killed by other black folks every year. fix those problems and then go after hollywood. >> here's a question why does the president -- this is important. why is al sharpton become obama's go-to guy? he's a three-time loser on high
7:31 pm
profile race cases cambridge police trayvon martin, three white house representatives to michael brown's funeral. how did sharpton become the go-to guy for obama? >> he's not the go-to guy for obama. >> those aren't just christmas parties. >> he has a good relationship with the president and he has a large audience. he has a radio show -- >> so he has an audience. has he not been a race provocateur -- >> you're talking 20 years ago. >> all right. how about michael brown? excuse me, michael brown robbed a store attacked a clerk tried to steal a cop's gun and charged the cop. >> first of all, those last two things -- >> that's what eyewitnesses said. >> the cops who stopped michael brown did not know -- >> actually case show he did know. >> that's not what the police chief said. >> what sharpton can do is put together a crowd. what he lacks is moral grav tas.
7:32 pm
>> what does that say about the president? >> i think the question answers itself. i think there's something very juvenile as i think said here last week and i think there's something juvenile about sharpton, the juveniles are hanging together. >> good to see you. appreciate you being with us. coming up next tonight here on "hannity". >> if there are 750 muslims at duke, then they need to be able to worship as they see fit just like other religions can here too. >> "hannity" crew traveled to duke for the university's decision to have the sound to call to prayer fors on campus. plus tonight. >> no sharia law ever in this country. >> our cameras and crew also went to texas to cover a stand with the prophet rally on saturday. they weren't allowed in, but we did get reaction from the protesters, the many of them outside. we'll show you that tape straight ahead. my name is daniel. i have diabetic nerve pain. the pain felt like my feet were on fire. i had these very burning needle-like sensations.

welcome back to "hannity." over the weekend our crew was banned from a stand with prophet rally in texas. but we did get reaction from protesters outside. take a look. >> this is america, you want to practice your religion wonderful. that's what america is all about. but do not come here and then wanting to change our laws to sharia law. it will not happen. >> i think mostly it's misguided. it would be come and meet us, perhaps you'll find that we're not as dangerous as you think. >> the keynote speaker was an unindicted co-conspirator in the world trade center bombing. >> when you have keynote speakers that are the kind of people they are, really what they're doing is recruiting. come on, let's face it. >> we are the minority. the majority of the people love islam and support islam. i love this country because i feel the love from everyone, muslim and non-muslim. >> on friday we sent our cameras
7:39 pm
to duke university for their first public muslim call to prayer. here's what happened. >> i think it's a great thing that they're responding they're still doing the worshipping. i wish it'd still happened in the chapel. i think it's a pity we had these pressures. >> i disagree. because i don't believe in the religion of islam. i think a lot of people don't understand it and that's why they're behind it. i think if they knew what islam is really about they wouldn't be here. >> duke isn't a christian community. we have people of all faiths here. and so the freedom to pray or call to prayer, i didn't see how it would affect the campus negatively. >> here with reaction from the american islamic forum for democracy, dr. jasse, and area imam. imam, do you think in light of what happened in paris that this
7:40 pm
is the time to institute in front of a christian chapel the muslim call to prayer? and is this really the time after what happened in the name of the prophet "we've avenged the prophet in paris" that that's the time for a stand with the prophet rally? or is that kind of an in your face attack by people that say yeah, we kind of agree with what happened in paris? >> you know, i'm going to shock you, sean. i agree with you 100%. i don't think this was a wise time to do that. >> oh, my godness. i'm coming home, elizabeth. i don't think it was either. >> yeah. >> it seems to me, dr. jasser. yeah, you threw me off. >> i knew that would. >> but it seems like there's an in-your-face quality with this stand with the prophet now that they're having the rally. similarly, oh, we don't want to offend people. so let's have a muslim call to prayer at a top university in

the country. >> it's exactly -- sean it's exactly what the islamists do. they find what makes them unique as muslims and demand that right so they can rally their troops. so instead of standing with america, standing with those who are for freedom and liberty, they want to have a call to prayer. no different than the ground zero mosque effort. it was inappropriate, it was at the wrong place, wrong time. and yet they wanted to do it to make a point and exploit our freedoms so that they separate muslims out of society as a separate group rather than being first as americans and then say that, you know what, we're going to lead the war against radical islam, against political islam. and i would love to hear what the imam just said but unfortunately offline when he's not on camera he's not leading movements -- >> look look dr. jasser, what you see is what you get. i don't have two faces. if i have -- i believe something, i say it. if i don't believe something
7:42 pm
i'll tell you. it wasn't wise. it wasn't wise that one day the slave master's in charge and the next day the slave is in charge. >> imam -- >> that has put us at odds in america for a long while. >> let me ask this question. imam this is important. where's the stand against radical islamist that are hijacking our religion march? where's that march? i want to see that one. >> well, i wouldn't put it in your terms, sean. but if you would take some time and get on an airplane and come to indianapolis on the 21st which is next wednesday -- >> you're going to have a stand against radical islamists? >> we're having a stand against all radical anything -- >> i want a very specific rally. a stand against radical islamists that are hijacking your religion. let's have that rally. i want that one. >> through interpretation yeah. but everyone's not going to arrive at that definition the way you have arrived at it.
7:43 pm
but the concept is there. >> you do agree that radical islamists killing the name of your prophet, right? >> radical people who use the name islam. i mean, you can't call them islamists or muslim. they don't even get into the ball game. >> no, they kill in the name of allah. what they did in paris was to avenge the prophet. they said so. dr. jasser. >> sean, there's a clear refusal of our leadership and also of the silent majority of muslims who don't agree with this islamist movement but yet are quiet because they don't want to address the bigger global problem seen in every muslim majority country of the organization of islamic cooperation where it's not just about islamophobia as they call it in france or america. they want to control what is islam inside saudi arabia and iran and elsewhere. and they're cowardly not approaching the leadership because they're afraid of being targeted. and the imam needs -- >> dr. jasser, take your medicine.
7:44 pm
>> take your medicine? why are you attacking him personally? >> i'm not attacking him. >> nice. here come the blasphemy police, america, there he is. >> do you think dr. jasser sounds like an apostate? >> no. i think it sounds like a person who doesn't understand his religion, that's all. >> what is the penalty if dr. jasser wanted to become a christian and join my faith, what is the penalty under islam for that? >> i would celebrate. >> would you do that in saudi arabia or iran or afghanistan? >> i don't live there, dr. jasser, i live in america. >> that's the problem. this is a muslim problem and until -- you can't say that's saudi arabia. >> why is the logical way -- >> i got to go. thank you both. >> thank you. >> some hollywood liberals are they trying to undermine "american sniper's chances of winning best picture?
